Susan Davis: A Lifetime on the Lake

When she was just five, Susan Davis' father was struck by lightning and killed while fishing near their home on Lake Sinclair. Until then, Susan's life had revolved around the lake - fishing and swimming its waters. It had been a special place for her, but not until that day did she begin to realize how formative it would be in her life.

FOR A CLEANER GEORGIA

How a Georgia dam is supporting a clean, sustainable energy future

During the hot, dry summers, residents near Georgia Power’s Wallace Dam hear sirens on a fairly regular basis. This is signaling that the power grid is about to get a big jolt of energy – 321 megawatts in fact.

That kind of wattage provides a near instant boost to a system that powers air conditioners and much more during the scorching Georgia summers.


MEASURING OUR IMPACT

Conservation initiative gives new life to endangered ecosystem

Leading the charge in the restoration of the longleaf pine forest is a prime example of our commitment to stewardship of the environment. Our goal was to save both priceless woodlands and endangered animal species, such as the Red-cockaded Woodpecker.
